The holidays are all about enjoying ourselves, so when it comes to the inevitable over-indulgence of food and drinks, we try to cut ourselves some slack. After all, what are the holidays without cookies, comforting drinks and some hearty meals?
But whenever we come across a recipe that’s both delicious enough to feel indulgent but is low on the calorie count, well that’s just like hitting the jackpot.
That’s why when we discovered that Skinnygirl has a whole chapter on holiday drinks in its Skinnygirl Cocktails: 100 Fun and Flirty Guilt-Free Recipes book, we just knew we had to share. Not only because it’s the perfect time of the year to try them, but also because Skinnygirl has some really great tasting picks to choose from. We know because we were gifted with a box full of their wines and liquors to try out, and we loved each and every one of them.
Below we list one of the the recipes from book. Try it out, and then get the book for even more recipes for the holidays and beyond.
